A new poll from the Delaware-based legal reform group Citizens for Judicial Fairness finds that State Senator Sarah McBride leads the Democratic primary race to succeed Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester with 22% to State Treasurer Colleen Davis’ 6% and former Wilmington Mayoral candidate Eugene Young with 4%. The remaining percentage in the poll was undecided.
That is a high number of undecideds compared with other prior polls of this race, with had McBride leading the race with 43% of the vote, which probably means that the pollster did not push for leanings.
The poll was conducted by Slingshot Strategies for the Delaware based group Citizens for Judicial Fairness (CJF) on Oct. 7-14, surveying 600 registered voters, of which about 45 percent were registered Democrats. It had a 3.9 percent margin of error. CJF is the latest incarnation of the PAC that resulted from the Transperfect Chancery fight a couple of years ago, where the losing owner of a part of the Transperfect company decided to spend millions attacking Delaware courts in TV ads. Do with that information what you will.
